The end is near…

The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before that great and notable Day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:20‭-‬21 KJV

For the promise is unto you, your children, and all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Acts 2:39 KJV

The title is something that you see “crazy people” in movies and other media shouting about but it gets your attention. The end of the world is not exactly what I’m referring to. Mainly because God’s Word never says anything about the world ending. There is a time of Tribulation that lasts for seven years and then there is a one-thousand-year Kingdom in which Jesus rules the world but the end of the world is not spoken of until the Great White Throne’s judgment after the one-thousand years. Even then, the heavens and the Earth will be remade as they were in the beginning.

Why am I writing this? Because our world is going through many “birth pains” right now and all of the prophecies point to this time as being the “end of days” or the “end of the age”. What does that mean? Well, the whole world has been enjoying the patience of God during the past two millennia which many scholars call the “Church Age”. This time is referred to as such because the church was started after Pentecost and the church that the apostles began at that time has spread all over the world. In many ways, the church has fulfilled its mandate to take the gospel to the whole world but there are still many who have not heard or accepted Jesus as their Savior.

The world is becoming more like the world was just before the Flood of Noah’s day. Rejecting Jesus and following their own ideas and religions or even rejecting religion entirely has become more accepted today than at any time in the past few hundred years. We are living during this time that Jesus spoke of when the world would be in a state of confusion and pestilence and wars. This time has been prophesied for many hundreds of years, actually, it is thousands, but there are few that have taken notice of it. Jesus is coming back soon to take His Bride, the church, back with Him to His Father’s house. I pray that anyone who reads this will seek Him out to be your Savior because the time is coming that the world will be in much worse shape than it is in today. Read the Bible, particularly the gospel of John, Romans, and the book of Revelation.

These three books will give you the reason for the things that are happening in today’s world. Seek Jesus as your Savior and give your heart to Him while there is time. When that day comes when the church is taken up, the problems of today will look like wonderful times in comparison to the next seven years that will come. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
